There’s nothing like a koala birthday and Lawson is in for some incredible treats! 16 is a huge milestone for any koala, but Lawson is able to celebrate his with an extra special friend, Australia Zoo Curator, Amanda Cole.
Amanda started her career at Australia Zoo 16 years ago, when Lawson was a tiny joey still in his mother’s pouch and they have been life-long friends ever since.
“While it is impossible to pick favourites here at Australia Zoo, Lawson certainly has a special place in my heart. He has always had such a big personality and it doesn’t seem as if he will be slowing down with age! I am so glad Lawson and I can celebrate our sweet 16 together,” says Amanda.
